Meeting you for the first time was a feeling that no one can ever express. Never had I felt so safe and secured. Away from all hurt and danger, you protected me with your life. Little did I know that this was just the beginning of a long and close relationship that know other could compare. You loved me with all that was within you. You loved me before I knew the meaning of love. You fed me when I was hunger, you comforted me when I was upset and restless. Little did I know that you would become the most important person in my life, you are my mother. The day I breathe my first breath of air you were there. The first day I ever cried, you were there to comfort me. The first day I looked into your eyes I knew you were special. The first day you put your warm arms around me I felt loved and wanted This was the day I was borned into this world, you are my mother. As you begin to nourish me and comfort me, I knew you were a part of me, for you sang to me day and night, you prayed for me all day long, you talked to me every chance you got. When I was sick you nursed me back until I was well again. Never did I go without your care, you are my mother. You never forsaked me nor did you ever leave me along. When I needed you, you, you were there, when I was afraid, you comfort me. As I begin to grow you taught me that true love was unconditional. you didn't stop loving me because my head was too big or my skin was too dark or because you wanted a girl instead of a boy. You love me as though I was your first child that you always wanted when in realilty, I was your 8th. "Oh how I loved you more everyday of my little life. Every morning when I open my eyes you were my sunshine, your are my mom. I knew you were the most special person in my life but not realizing that no one could ever take your place. You taught me right from wrong, you taught me to love others as much as I love myself. You taught me to be generous and to get rid of selfish desires. You taught me to be kind to older people and to help them if they needed help and not expect anything in return. You taught me it's more of a joy to give than to recieved, you are my mother. I know growing up I was a lier, thief and a deciever, but you discipline me and help guide me in the right way, never did you stop loving me because I wasn't a perfect child. How can I ever repaid you for your instruction and your love for me. Now that you are gone, I realize that everything I did for you was just a drop in the bucket. I'm sorry, I should have spent more time with you, I should have called you as often as I could. I should have told you every opportunity I had how much you meant to me and how much I loved you for must being my mom. Now that I understand that our relationship has been put on hold, that where you are one day I will be also. I can look forward to seeing you once again with pure love and joy and never feel alone again. The love that I had for you is now being shared with others something that you taught me to do and I know you would be very proud of. I am not saying good bye, but will say " until we me again", oh what a wonderful time it will be, because you are my mother, your son, EW

Will the circle be unbroken? I believe you just declared it would not!

Boy that was long. It's funny because my mother had eight,allthough she wasn't around to raise us. Did you lose your mother? It sounds like she raised you,but then she passed on,if this is so then you were very lucky to have her for the time she was here.
Well good luck and keep writing. Or did you
make this up?If not that was a beautiful ending.

This is not a POEM, it is a letter. No ryhm, meter, or anything resembling any poetry I know. I commend you for putting all that down, but in the future plese try to post it "poetically", since this is a poetry forum.
